Ghanaian nurse Aurora ‘Ora’ Aikins never expected to find the love of her life while on vacation in South Africa. Engaged to another and believing that love has no place in her life, she returns to Ghana, and puts duty and honor first.

Three years later, Dr. Jason Lartey still can’t get Ora out of his mind or his heart. After learning she never married, he takes a risk and moves to Ghana hoping to rekindle what they started. His sudden appearance in Ora’s Emergency Department sends sparks flying all over again.

They’re in the same country, working in the same hospital, and together but distance creeps between them. Can they make their destined love one for the ages?  


African romance is such a new genre for me but with a few up and coming authors and their books, I'm enjoying reading African fiction that is light and uplifting as well as emotional and intense.

Midwife to Destiny is set in Ghana although the story starts out in South Africa. Ora is on holiday where an injury means she ends up in hospital and meets the Jason. Their attraction is immediate and builds as they spend time together outside the hospital, and they start falling in love.

But real life intrudes and Ora has a fiancé in Ghana whom she returns to, although she doesn't love him. Fast forward to the present and Jason shows up at the hospital Ora works in. Ora is not married and Jason is single. You would think there would be no barriers to their getting together.

Wrong. Ora's past and emotional hang-ups are a major barrier to their having a happy ending. How does it get resolved? Read it to find out.

This story is sweet and funny in places. The author's writing style is both descriptive and humorous. The story moved along at a pretty even pace and had a chick-lit feel with echoes of Dorothy Koomson.

Ms Prah brings sweet, light and frothy to African romance and just like my favourite cappuccino drink, I loved it.
